  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Makes big impact off bench

    Cousins tallied 15 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes off the bench Monday in the Clippers' 116-102 win over the Suns in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Cousins had been excluded from the rotation in both of the past two games, but the Clippers added the veteran big man back to the second unit after top center Ivica Zubac (knee) was surprisingly ruled out for Game 5. Efficiency has been an issue all season for Cousins between stops in Houston and LA, but he knocked down more than half his shots Monday while committing no turnovers and only one foul during his time on the court. Despite the solid showing off the bench, Cousins' usage in Wednesday's Game 6 may hinge on the availability of Zubac.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Plays 13 minutes off bench

    Cousins finished Sunday's Game 1 against Phoenix with 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 13 minutes.

    Cousins played in the first two games of the Utah series but was a DNP-CD in Games 3 through 6 as the Clippers favored smaller lineups. Facing a new opponent in the West Finals, coach Ty Lue turned back to Cousins for a small role off the bench, and the veteran big man took full advantage of the opportunity, putting up 10 shots and getting to the line three times in his 13 minutes. Given his defensive limitations, it remains to be seen if Cousins will remain in the rotation, but Lue and the Clippers may need the former-All-Star's offensive contributions to help offset the ongoing absence of Kawhi Leonard (knee).

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Could see more time in Game 2

    Cousins posted six points, three rebounds and one block in four minutes during Tuesday's Game 1 loss to the Jazz. Coach Tyronn Lue said that he liked what he saw from Cousins and that the center could be used in the series more, Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com reports.

    Cousins didn't play at all during the Round 1 series against the Mavericks that went seven games. However, with the Jazz rolling out an elite center in Rudy Gobert and a quality backup in Derrick Favors, Cousins might have more opportunities to be used effectively.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Won't play Sunday

    Cousins (foot) won't play in Sunday's game against the Thunder, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran has been added to a long list of scratches for the regular season finale. Serge Ibaka should see an increased role Sunday with Cousins out.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Questionable Sunday

    Cousins is questionable for Sunday's game at Oklahoma City with a left foot injury, Garrett Chorpenning of SI.com reports.

    The 30-year-old apparently picked up the injury Friday against Houston when he had 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 17 minutes. The Clippers rested several players for that contest, so Cousins will likely have a limited role if available Sunday.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Scores 16 across 14 minutes

    Cousins scored 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 14 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Nuggets.

    Cousins continued to sit in the 14-minute range, as he has played between 13 and 15 minutes in six of his last eight contests. Of late, he's managed to turn that limited opportunity into production by averaging 12.0 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.8 blocks across his last five games. Cousin's role is likely to shrink further once Serge Ibaka (back) is able to return to the floor.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Records double-double off bench

    Cousins delivered 16 points (6-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and an assist across 25 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss against the Pelicans.

    Cousins secured a deal with the Clippers for the rest of the season earlier Monday, and he celebrated it by posting his first double-double of the campaign. Cousins is not expected to replace Ivica Zubac as the interim starting center while Serge Ibaka (back) is out, but he has been providing solid numbers off the bench -- albeit on a limited role that conspires against his fantasy upside.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Signs with Clips for rest of season

    Cousins will sign with the Clippers for the remainder of the 2020-21 season, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Cousins' second 10-day deal is set to expire Monday night, so the Clippers will opt to keep him around for the remainder of the season. With Serge Ibaka (back) still out indefinitely, Cousins has provided valuable minutes at center behind interim starter Ivica Zubac. In Friday's win at Houston, Cousins went for 11 points, eight boards, two assists and a block in just 15 minutes of action.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Signs second 10-day deal

    Cousins signed a second 10-day contract with the Clippers on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Cousins appeared in three of six possible games during his first 10-day stint with the Clippers. He averaged 6.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 9.7 minutes. He'll get another shot to prove his worth to the team, but it's a situation that fantasy managers can most likely ignore.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Can't find consistent rotation spot

    Cousins has appeared in only two of the Clippers' four games since signing a 10-day deal with the team, playing 14 total minutes while compiling 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Fantasy managers that picked Cousins up hoping that the four-time All-Star might be rejuvenated by the move to the championship-contending Clippers can probably abandon the dream now. Even though Serge Ibaka (back) remains without a clear target date for a return, Cousins hasn't been able to capture a consistent role in head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation. Ivica Zubac should remain locked into big minutes as the starting center while Ibaka is sidelined, leaving Cousins and Patrick Patterson to fill limited backup roles behind Zubac depending on which player matches up better with the opposition.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Debuts Tuesday

    Cousins amassed seven points (3-4 FG, 1-4 FT), four rebounds and two assists in eight minutes during Tuesday's 133-116 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Cousins made his debut for the Clippers and looked decent enough during his time on the floor. What his exact role looks like moving forward remains to be seen, but he certainly adds depth to their frontcourt. Since he's on a 10-day contract, his first goal will be to secure a permanent spot on the LA roster.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Not on injury report

    Cousins is not on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Trail Blazers.

    The Clippers haven't made an official announcement, but Cousins' removal from the report would imply that he'll be available to make his debut Tuesday night. The 30-year-old finalized a 10-day deal with the Clippers over the weekend after parting ways with the Rockets back in mid-February. With Serge Ibaka (back) out indefinitely, the Clippers will likely give Cousins some looks as the backup to Ivica Zubac over the next few games.

  • Clippers' DeMarcus Cousins: Reaches 10-day with Clippers

    Cousins agreed Sunday with the Clippers on a 10-day contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Cousins and the Clippers have been in touch about a potential deal for several days, but the two sides appear to have reached a formal agreement, pending the big man's ability to fully clear the NBA's health and safety protocols for COVID-19. According to Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com, Cousins entered the protocol last Tuesday in preparation for signing with LA, so he should be eligible to join the team Monday, assuming he's been testing negative for the virus. He'll likely make his team debut Tuesday against the Trail Blazers if the Clippers are satisfied with where he stands on the conditioning front.
